Progesterone also known as P4 (pregn-4-ene-3,20-dione) is a C-21 steroid hormone involved in the female menstrual cycle, pregnancy (supports gestation) and embryogenesis of humans and other species. Progesterone belongs to a class of hormones called progestogens, and is the major naturally occurring human progestogen.
Progesterone is used primarily as a growth promotant in cattle in combinations with estradiol or its esters. When administered exogenously, progesterone enters the same metaboloc pathways and is indistinguishable from the endogenously produced compound.
